My sign at the #KillTheBill May Day protest in London (Photo by Joe Kibria).

'Blue bib' cops at protests are there to gather intelligence on protesters which the police then use against protest movements.

The Police monitoring organisation Netpol found evidence from FOI requests that 'Police Liaison Officers' at protests are trained in intelligence gathering, and information they acquired through friendly chats at protests has been later used in prosecutions against peaceful protesters.

The nationwide protests were about the dystopian police powers in the new Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill currently being pushed by the government. It would outlaw any protest which caused 'serious annoyance', i.e every protest worth its salt, would expand attacks on Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities and increase already misused stop and search powers.

Privatised pavements now allow pedestrians more choice in selecting their level of safety and convenience when crossing the road.

This project was possible thanks to my backers on Patreon who've enabled me to get a 3D printer. Massive thanks for the support!

I designed a new poster for Brandalism's ongoing campaign focusing on HSBC's empty climate promises. Billboard and bus stop posters were installed around the UK by Brandalism and volunteers from other anti-advertising groups. Massive thanks to everyone who put these in the street.

More details about the project on the Brandalism website.

These posters are a follow up to one I made late last year.
